Incoming freshmen at the Illinois Institute of Technology are getting free Apple iPads.

The school handed them out Friday, hoping students will use them to take notes, read books, and do other research.

Faculty members can also build apps specific to their courses.

For the kids, the iPads were free, but tuition is more than $30,000.
